The wait staff are terrific and very knowledgeable about all of the menu items. I had gnocchi in clam and mussel sauce that... read more

I am from Italy but have been living abroad for more than 10 years. I usually avoid having Italian food outside of Italy, because it usually is never as good as home.

Everything about the dinner we had here was wonderful! We started with bruschetta, then creaser salad, pasta dishes, dessert and coffee. I love Italian food and this place was top notch. We will tell all our friends to go.
